saying their budgets are going to be cut. then the pentagon came out the next day and said we're going to have to lay off 800,000 civilian workers or furlough them one day a week. yesterday you had lahood, the transportation secretary come to the white house briefing room and say we're going to have delays in air traffic, shut down air traffic control. this tactic is because the white house recognizes they're trying to sway public opinion and put pressure from the outside on republicans. it's interesting. a poll came out just this week that said the vast majority of americans don't know a lot about these cuts that are coming down. the white house is trying to change that. the white house is still working, hoping for a deal. but i get a sense that most of washington and probably even at the white house they recognize we could go past the sequester at least for a few weeks, and there's going to be another chance late in march where the continuing spending resolution comes up or expires and they're going to have to negotiate deal on that. and it all could just be wrapped up into one. >> d

of focusing on the effect of those cuts on the pentagon, the president will talk about the effect on the middle class. things like research and headstart and push for congress to quickly make some changes to fix the debt coalition here in washington say it's not just the president and it's not just congress. they've got to work together to get this done. and on the republican side. marco rubio from florida, by the way, delivers the response tonight. republicans are already criticizing what happens after the president's speech. he's hitting the road, three trips in three days to push his agenda. mara. >> tracie potts in washington, tonight, brian williams and the nieb nbc team will have complete coverage of the state of the union address. >>> many around the world are still stunned by pope benedict's announcement he's giving up the pap papacy. and it shows lightning hitting the vatican after news broke. nbc's claudio vania is there. good morning. >> reporter: well, a day after the announcement that pope benedict will abdicate, more details are emerging the newspaper says that decis

the sequester. that the cuts will take effect for a short period of time. the pentagon is going with congress to say that they are likely go to furlough more than 700,000 employees if these cuts were to take effect. it's basically going to be a 20% pay cut for those employees. and that's going to trickle down into the economy. now that announcement comes one day after president obama called on congress to act. >>> vice president joe biden is offering up advice on the best way to defend yourself in you with a firearm. in a facebook meeting tuesday, biden talked about the white house efforts to restrict the size of ammunition clips and other proposals. during that chashgts biden said the best thing foreprotection is a shotgun. >> put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. i promise you, whoever is coming in is not going to -- you don't need an ar-15. it's harder to aim. it's harder to use. and in fact, you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself. buy a shotgun. >> buy a shotgun. all right. biden said he keeps two shotguns locked up at home and he's told his wife jill

the plants and production facilities across the country. >> reporter: the pentagon says military readiness and civilian employees will suffer and many republicans agree that the cuts will hurt. others say the president's insistence on new tax hikes ignores other reductions that could replace the sequester cuts. >> in you were to pay federal employees about the same level you pay private employees that saves about $32 billion a year. other places to cut. you could cut foreign aid in half and save $20 billion. so we have a list of savings we could send to the president if he's interested and we could do this without laying anybody off. >> reporter: now, there is a campaign element to all this. the president has been crisscrossing the country, trying to drum up public support and put more pressure on congress to get a deal done. next week he will head to newport to talk specifically about the cuts to the pentagon. back to you. >> sherri ly, thank you very much. >>> in other news, d.c. council members are holding a special meeting next week to discuss taking possible action against ward one co
furloughs. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has one worker's stories. she's joining us. barbara? >> wolf, we've heard about this fancy washington word sequester for months now. what does it really mean? it means for hundreds and thousands of federal workers trying to figure out how to live on less. maintaining fighter jets and warships at the ready, providing care at military hospitals, crucial military functions done by some 800,000 civilian workers. now the pentagon has told congress these workers will be forced to stay home one day a week without pay if mandatory spending cuts are not averted. >> everybody is waiting to hear. it's definitely become the new "f "word here. furlough. >> for federal workers it will mean painful decisions. peter is already making plans. >> i'll pay those core bills. i'll pay the mortgage and the utilities and then you live on what's left. >> the head of the government workers union says his people have already suffered. >> already these employees have suffered a 27-month pay freeze. now a 20% pay cut. >> the impact of a one day a week furlough for
at the pentagon, chuck hagel, and then john brennan, his pick for the cia. obviously the benghazi matter is an obstacle for chuck hagel's confirmation and vote there in congress and then this john brennan matter is very important to the issue of these targeted drone strikes, rand paul, the senator from kentucky has said that he is willing to hold up that vote on john brennan. if he doesn't receive assurances from the white house that the united states will not target any drone strikes on americans on american soil. so some of this information i think the administration is hoping will at least for now satisfy some of those members with these concerns, wolf. >> it's going to be a tough battle, i take it. both of these confirmations likely to go through next week. but it's by no means a done deal, is it? >> reporter: it's not a -- especially when you have senators saying they may hold up nominees and so we're going to have to wait and see whether or not senator paul is satisfied with the information that he's getting from the white house. but this is perhaps, you know, a break in an impasse
that americans are com play september about defense cuts and cutting the pentagon. does that make it harder to sway republicans? >> i would point you to what republicans have said about sequester on national security and on our defense readiness. it is a fact that it affects deployment, it affects -- it would have negative impacts on army readiness, it imposes cuts to air force flying hours. i think that is a concern to all americans who worry about our national defense. but it would also, again, result in 0,000 kids getting kicked off of head start. it would rezurlt to cuts in mental health services to children. it would have cuts to teachers and to mental health care. that is to just name a few. to the jobs of first responders and others who would be affected by this. the reason why the list is so long because the sequester was written to be broad and, therefore, not to become policy. we call on congress to take reasonable and appropriate action, to pass legislation that would buy down the sequester, postpone the sequester with a package of spending cuts and revenue increase. we're makin
the express bus service to the pentagon. this is all to enhance service when the silver line metro begins again this year. some writers say switching to metro could significantly increase their commute. it appears chuck hagel has enough votes to become the next secretary of defense. >> he secured the necessary votes when richard shelby of alabama changed sides. he said he would vote for him. shall be joined republicans initially it last week for an unprecedented filibuster. first lady michelle obama is making a return to late-night tv. she will appear tonight on late- night with jimmy fallon. this will mark the third anniversary of her fitness and -- initiative let's move. >> jacqui joins us now. good to see you. >> we're looking at live pictures out of chicago. look no further than chicago. you can see at the bottom of the screen -- >> chicago has been about as we have been. a snow drought. and received less than an inch. it will pick up later this evening. they could see their heaviest snowfall, which could be about three or 5 inches. 17 inches of snowfall in kansas. it has been a crazy
out of federal programs and the pentagon. 800,000 civilian employees have been told by the defense department that they will likely be placed on unpaid leave. with the house and senate still in recess, a number of democrats are calling for congress to reconvene to deal with this mess. secretary of state john kerry, meanwhi meanwhile, is reminding his former colleagues that actions here at home do have global implications. take a listen. >> it is often said that we cannot be strong at home if we're not strong in the world. but in these days of a looming budget sequester that everyone actually wants to avoid, or most, we can't be strong in the world unless we are strong at home. my credibility is a diplomat, working to help other countries create order is strongest when america, at last, puts its own fiscal house in order. and that has to be now. let's reach a responsible agreement that prevents these senseless consults. let's not lose this opportunity because of politics. >> you know, mike barnicle, politics is such a cruel, cruel game. seriously. there's one guy that gets to the to
